of his predecessors? >> i think he will deepen this trend, and a thing -- i think it is something he has done in argentina and you will see across the board now. so, yes. >> thanks very much. barack obama is set to arrive in israel on wednesday. it will be his first official visit as u.s. president. israel and the u.s. are, of course, close allies, but obama did not travel to the country during his first term. >> that decision was widely considered a snub of israel, and many israelis view the u.s. leader with a bit of skepticism. winning over public opinion is a top priority on this trip along with the stalled middle east peace process and iran's nuclear peace program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is
of their right to defend themselves which is clearly talking about an attack on iran which is not something that president obama wanted to see. president obama who at times has been seen a little bit soft on iran for his part tried to make it seem that the united states would always have israel's back. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it make the world a better place. >> reporter: president obama has an uphill battle on this charm offensive going forward. martha, a recent poll done here in israel only 10% of israelis had a favorable or likeness toward president obama. martha: hmmm. that is a pretty rough number for him there, leland. what is he doing to sort of try to win over the people in israel during this trip? >> reporter: hearts and minds. first of all he went on a tour of iron dome battery. that is what the israelis come up with defend the country from missiles from hamas and hezbollah in the northern part o
that president obama can leave israel with something concrete. what is the buzz? what do you think? >> he will not leave with anything concrete that he c-- that he can announce. but he will leave with a better understanding of how to deal with the issues. >> what about egypt? they are going nuts. they seem to hate everyone, it drives me crazy the egyptian story. >> there's so much going on, that as long as it is contained in egypt to use that loaded term, then they are probably going to be fine with letting that play out, quote unquote democratically. >> as always, wish we had more time to purpose -- to pursue that. back here at home, we are facing a threat of an internet itunes tax, that is right, a bill in the senate would mandate that all e-commerce sales must pay state sales taxes for the first time. that includes downloads like itunes, it's a massive tax grab and expansion that must be stopped. later in the show, the finance minister from cyprus is asking for a bail out. they will keep their banks closed for another week. we will have reports coming up from moscow and cyprus. i'm kud
they begin? >> well, not by using the word reset. because when obama resets something, it's a disaster and i have to say, megyn, i was fascinated and jarred when i heard president obama speak about our eternal friendship with israel and realized in washington eternal means until the 2014 election. but there are stakes here and to be fair, i think the president has undergonna real mental, perhaps even emotional shift. as we all know he came to office with a chip on his shoulder against israel. he had that chicago reverend wright background where israel is repressors and arabs were good freedom fighters especially the palestinians and heard in the cairo speech, but for the last four years, our president has been trying to deal with the fractious, often truculent arabs and now the palestinians, even though he is going to the west bank to meet with them tomorrow, the palestinians are complaining that he won't pay homage to the tomb of yasser arafat and i think to an extent our president may have finally realized that, yes, israel is our only friend and ally and by the way, the only truly civiliz
of it. my guess with president obama, honestly, is that he looked at this, said we need to get something passed, an assault weapons ban will tank there, and i'm going to need to go to these people on other things -- on immigration, maybe on climate change potential. i'm going to need to go to them on other tough votes, and why do this now when it may not pass anyway? i know temperature gun control advocates are very upset, but susan put it right, a very cold political calculation. if you want to know who really sort of ended the assault weapons ban, it's thought conservative democrats in places like south dakota, montana, north carolina, people who have to stand for reelection in states where gun rights is a popular position. >> speaking of a state where gun rights is a popular position, kentucky, where mitch mcconnell is phasing a race and now former president bill clinton getting in there and signaling his opposition to ashley judd's high-profile thought of running. according to the secretary of state, alan son grimes. what is the story behind that? >> democrats think they have a shot
here. i think there is something to this trip that if netanyahu and obama speaking in israel, but also speaking to iran. do you think there is any merit to that? >> well, yeah, i mean, in iran i'm sure they read some of the headlines and everything that has been written about the president and netanyahu how they don't get along how netanyahu would have preferred romney to win. this is to show that there is no daylight between the two countries. i think each president was in full pander mode. i thought netanyahu was quite gracious to the president, saying they've met 10 or 11 times. he appreciates the time the u.s. president is putting into this, and the banter not only at the press conference, but the reports from the reporters following them and apparently netanyahu has been lamenting about all the political problems he's facing putting this new coalition together and the president saying, well, tell me about it. i have problems with our congress and netanyahu said we have more moving parts around here. and they're talking about the system they have to operate in. >> michael: it's a f
obama and israeli leaders both agree that something needs to be done to keep iran from developing nuclear weapons. israel threatened to take military action if iran appeared to be on the verge of having a bomb. president obama pushed for more time for peace talks but says military action is still on the table. president obama once hep weres up his -- once he wraps up this conference, he will head to speak to benjamin netanyahu where they will hold a press conference in about three hours. back to you. >> thank you. >>> a sheriff says it appears a 911 call to a middle school school in southern minnesota was a hoax. the school in new prague, minnesota immediately went on red alert and locked down each class when a caller said there was someone with an ak-47. a search of the school turned up nothing. they say everyone is southwest. this school is 45 miles southwest of minneapolis. there are about 875 students at that school in grades 6th through 8th. >>> an ohio teenager has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for a school shooting that killed three stud
mentions. palestinians are as frustrated with obama's presidency as israelis have been. so i think that is really something that he has to tackle first. and on the beast today, on the daily beast, the brookings institute has a really interesting primer on what obama should look for here at this meeting and some of the objectives he should go for. one of them is that he should reintroduce himself to the israeli public and try and make friends with the palestinians again. >> andrea, let me bring you back in here. let's talk about the newly formed coalition government. what might that government do? how might that affect any sort of potential talks with the palestinians? >> well, they are going to put, he is putting, a more moderate member of his cabinet in charge of the peace talks. but she has shown in the past, not the greatest plist cal skill, not able to get them off ground when she even had power. so that's a real problem for this government. in terms of housing policy. the latest issue says where the settlements are. there are settlements and the u.s. says settlements are not h
. the white house says this trip is a chance for president obama is connect with the israeli people. a poll published last week shows only 10% had a favorable attitude for him. president obama and israeli leaders both agree that something needs to be done to keep iran from developing nuclear weapons. israel threatened to take military action if iran appeared to be on the verge of having a bomb. president obama pushed for more time for peace talks but says military action is still on the table. president obama once hep weres up his -- once he wraps up this conference, he will head to speak to benjamin netanyahu where they will hold a press conference in about three hours. back to you. >> thank you. >>> a sheriff says it appears a 911 call to a middle school school in southern minnesota was a hoax. the school in new prague, minnesota immediately went on red alert and locked down each class when a caller said there was someone with an ak-47. a search of the school turned up nothing. they say everyone is southwest. this school is 45 miles southwest
president obama and prime minister netanyahu playing basketball together or something. it's always been a traditionally frosty relationship. i suppose it's a lot of fence mending going on here. is it warming up at all there? >> there is some evidence already that it's warming up a bit. look, do not expect these two very different men and their personal characteristics and their political philosophy, president obama left of center, prime minister netanyahu right of center, no question netanyahu favored romney in the presidential election. i talked to a top u.s. official the other day who put it this way, he said "they're stuck with each other." both of these guys just won elections. the president starting his second term. prime minister netanyahu put together his coalition government. iran is a huge policy issue, trying to restart the peace process is a huge issue, if they have a better personal relationship they can get things done. you saw first thing this morning the prime minister tries to crack a joke, he says if you can ditch your security detail, i have a fake mustache and we'll g
to get political for a moment here. i know you voted for president obama but since been quoted saying you like your vote back or something like that. why is that? >> because politicians mean well. this across the well. politicians mean well but, business people in my estimation should be running countries, and perhaps business women. there would be less wars but certainly they pay more attention to making sure that, you know, you take in more money than you put out. it is a simple business model. we ar 17 trillion almost in debt. melissa: right. >> there is no excuse for that. there should be an amendment passed. it should be, it should be against the law to be in debt, period. melissa: yeah. gene, you are a ledge -- legendary investor, i'm not sure people kn that. when you rang the bell at the new york city the dow was 1700. you side, buy, buy, buy. you said the market would two up from there. we're sitting at 14,000. what is your prediction of the dow? >> it will go up. the marketplace is not undervalued. listen to an idiot like me. if i understand and believe in america, the political
been on fire. thanks a lot, nicole. speaking of someone on fire, or something on fire, dr. ben carson, president obama's new outspoken critic. he's going to join us in the next hour to talk about this. >> it's almost laughable some of the things i hear people say to criticize you, they say he's a neuro surgeon, he couldn't know anything about economics. it's not brain surgery. charles: now, does dr. carson have plans to run for public office? we're going to ask him alt 10:45. you cannot the miss that and remember of course, we want to hear from you, we love hearing from you, send us your e-mails right now at "varney & compan varney@foxbusiness.com, and we'll read them on the air. now i have the honors of doing the seven early movers. williams and sonoma, rich folks buying stuff again woo hoo! >> and there was a large oil find, a few companies including this, not certain how big it is, but move on the stock. frances francesca, they upped the price target and previous target was 38. and adobe, beat the street by 4 cents, a lot of upgrades and j and p says $40 stock and one said $43. a f
nothing. do something. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. president obama leads. he arrived in israel. a three-day trip where he will meet with israeli and palestinian leaders. for months, republicans attacked his leadership and cynically said this president doesn't care about one of our strongest allies. but what the world saw today was president obama leading on the world stage. >> as beebee mentioned, this is our fourth meeting. america's support for israel's security is unprecedented and the alliance between our nations has never been stronger. israel's security is guaranteed because it has a great deal on its side, including unwavering support of the united states. we have your back. >> we have your back. doesn't exactly fit the republican's effort to use obama's diplomacy as a battery ram against him. >> on israel, it's never been worse between the united states and israel. >> you skipped israel but you went to the other nations and, by the way, they noticed
and the obama administration, together to do something bold like the simpson- bowles commission, this will continue. domestic discretionary accounts are being squeezed. entitlements are rising. you make a powerful case against sequestration on friday, we received a reprogramming a request from the eternal -- attorney general moving funds, including fbi funds to the bureau of prisons. we are going to approve that. you have had one prison guard killed. you had another commit suicide i think because of the death. how are you planning to function at reduced funding levels for this year? >> we are cutting back across the board. we have a hiring freeze. by the end of this fiscal year, we will have 2200 opened vacant positions. we delayed i.t. upgrades, which are expensive, but tremendously important. that includes putting off, picking up technology that would assist us in detecting cyber attacks. we reduced or eliminated operational training and travel across the board. that is in an effort to make certain that we do everything we can to ensure that we minimize any impact of furloughs
get to know president obama the way i've gotten to know him. i think you've just heard something that is very meaningful. it may have escaped you but it hasn't escaped me. that is the president announced that in addition to all the aide that his administration's provided, including iron dome, including defense funding for israel during difficult times, he announced we're going to begin talks on another ten-year process, arrangements, to ensure american military assistance to israel. i think this is very significant and i want to express my thanks for everything that you have done, and i want to thank you, also, for that statement you just made. i think it's very, very important. so i think israelis will judge this by the unfolding events and by what is happening, what is taking place. and for this, you know, there's a simple answer to your question, the gentleman from nbc. you see a second term as president and third term at prime minister, that really fixes things. >> all right. thank you very much, everybody. [ applause ] >> shepard: president obama and prime minister netanyahu
. and finally, all sides of the middle east peace conflict are seeing eye to eye on something. none of them expect much to come out of president obama's first trip to israel as president. the president just wrapped up a news conference with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and as you'll see from this clip things are off to a chummy start for two leaders with legendary limited affection from one another. >> i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as your two sons for their warmth and hospitality. it was wonderful to see them. they are -- i did inform the prime minister that they are very good looking young men who clearly got their looks from their mother. >> well, i can say the same of your daughters. >> this is true. >> even before the president's arrival the consensus among israelis, palestinians, and even white house officials was that this visit will not do anything concrete to move the peace process forward, so we can't help but ask, what's the point? let's try to get some perspective from cnn's jessica yellin who is live in jerusalem. jessica, wer
be a major betrayal. >> they say they wouldn't cave without the approval. question when mr. obama needs to back down on issue he called a top priority. >> the reality is that there is something that he wanted. so why isn't he putting the muscle behind it. lawmakers in washington continue their debate, number of state legislatures are moving forward. they passed tough newtown la laws. governor hickenlooper pushed back against the criticism that the gun laws have been rushed through. >> i hope you are not holding washington up as a model. how we should do the lawmakerring process. >> for now it appears that they offer legislation claimed to crack down on illegal trafficking. there is a great deal of debate behind the scenes whether or not he could cobble together bipartisan support for background checks. >> mark sanford received the most votes in tuesday's republican primary for the vacant house seat in south carolina. he is attempting a political comeback after the fall-out from extramarital affair. he had 37% of the vote. he will face the second place finisher in a rupoff next month. th

in an interview used the word "balance" obama's word, eight times and every has their own agenda. >> you can see it in the morning, if something is said on a certain cable news program by a democrat, you know by the end of the day everybody will use the same line. >> sean: and that's the entire news programming. >> it's kind of annoying, oh, today the word is "balance." . >> i'm looking for a republican who will pound the table on the words growth and prosperity. >> i think you need to look at the governor on the energy side of things, i think the governors are doing a better job and collectively even if they're democrat, there are 30 republican governors, and 20 democrats, come together and to say that president obama, we've got your back on the keystone pipeline, let us have it, let us take the shackles off. >> sean: that's only the tip of the iceberg. >> shell oil told me the other day. >> sean: hofmeister. >> if you liberate america's fossil fuel you'll have 7% growth in the american account. >> sean: we would unleash prosperity we've-- >> that's reaganesque. >> sean: good to see you. did yo
at steve croft interview with obama and clinton. that's humiliating. you wouldn't have seen that on "60 minutes" back 40 years ago. they would have been ashamed to put something on like that. i think there is a affinity with this administration. in the bush years there was a lot of hard hitting stuff opposed to bush, especially after the iraq war went south. then they felt all guilty. they should have done x, y and z in the beginning. they were really tough. i think there really is a difference in how hard hitting the networks are depending on whether there is a conservative or a liberal in office. >> bill: i agree 100%. call them low information voters are becoming the majority in this country because there isn't information out there anymore. >> it's buried on the internet. >> bill: not on the internet. it's all skewed. you know, objective hard-hitting, uncovering things. if you don't know information, much rarer than it used to be. >> do you think the "times" or the post or the globe or 00 "l.a. times" 30 years ago was objective? what you had then was a liberal monopoly on the netted
a year away from developing a nuclear weapon. >> that is a red line for us. something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world. >> president obama will use the visit to mend fences with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu after the two leaders sparred over expansion of jewish settlements and areas claimed by the palestinians. on the trip mr. obama will head to the palestinian authority for a meeting with president mahmoud abbas. >> this reflects a deep commitment by president obama to see the limitation of the two state solution. >> reporter: not everyone there is happy the president is coming. some protesters in bethlehem burned ape poster of mr. obama. the president rounds off his trip with a stop in jordan for a meeting g meeting. administration officials have set low expectations for the trip saying there will be no major announcements of a breakthrough in the israeli-palestinian peace process. >>> the mayor of kansas city missouri, was in the middle of delivering his state of the city address when a man shoved him, an
something like that. let me prove the point. show a picture of this guy when he's not playing the rel of satan? there. that doesn't look anything like obama. >> greg: so he did make him look like obama? bob is right! >> bob: exactly right. >> dana: i don't think the picture helps the case. >> eric: that picture? >> bob: no. >> greg: you convinced me. >> andrea: that looks like juan valdez. i want to know mini series, i don't think it looks like president obama at all, at all. i want to know what mark brunett has against def leopard. that's from the "rock of ages" video. that looks like just like -- that is not the best clip. anyway. >> bob: i'm telling you, your point makes my point. that dude, they had to make him look like obama. >> eric: stop it. >> dana: bob, what did you say when the other movie used the george w. bush mask as like one of the murder killers -- >> greg: his head in "game of thrones." >> dana: right. is that hollywood against george w. bush? >> greg: they admitted to doing that. >> andrea: we did it as a topic on the show. >> bob: we did? you know there are many to
's the point of talking if you don't have something important to say? ♪ >>> back to "hardball." now back to the sideshow. last night i attended the saturday patrick's day reception and president obama took note of the irish roots of his own administration. >> my new chief of staff is a mcdonough. my national security adviser is a donnell. our new cia director is brennan. joe biden has very kindly agreed to stay on as irishman in chief. joe couldn't be here tonight because he's on his way back from the installation of pope francis in rome. for those of you who know joe, literally the only thing that could keep him away from st. patrick's day at the white house is the installation of a new pope. >> nice night. by the way, jimmy fallon spotted biden in a photo at the installation mass and what might be the easiest game of where's waldo ever. >> vice president joe biden actually attended pope francis' first mass. have you seen this picture? >> yes. >> this is unbelievable. it's a picture of him in the crowd. see if you can find biden. see if you can find -- are you kidding me? this is a real
then they will be at around $7 and something cents for tipped employees. but it's just a shame. now, obama said $9 an hour but he wanted to end his at 2015. until 2015, our bill, as we stage it over three years, would be at $9 and $0.15 an hour. pretty close to what obama said but one more year. get it to 1010 and index it and the administration is on board with that. >> good. does that mean we won't have the ongoing battle. >> it loses it, and then we have to bump it back up again. small businesses said they would like it because they would know what they had to plan for, two 1/2 %, they can handle that. >> what about we hear every time this issue comes up, it's going to cost jobs. there will be fewer people being able to work because employers will have to fire people, blah, blah, blah, blah blah. >> i heard john boehner talking about that. show me the proof. don't give me that verbiage, that rhetoric. there is absolutely no empirical data to show that. in fact, just the opposite. a long-time study was done actually in oregon. they took a county in oregon that boarded a cou
of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a very high concern, something that will be talked about between the president and prime minister netanyahu. >> probably just moves up on the agenda. do we expect president obama to move forward in the movement in the israeli-palestinian peace process as well? >> reporter: that is the issue that is causing controversy. a lot of people are not expecting. they have low expectations when it comes to whether or not a peace process plan will be put in place. but we are now hearing that there is possibly going to be some movement because we're hearing that kerry is coming back here on saturday to sit with netanyahu to see how they can push forward this peace process between israel and the palestinians. the palestinians looking at this saying, look, we don't think anything is going to move forward. they really hope that something will happen. but there hasn't been any high expectations here. >> sarah sidener, thank you. >>> and now syria. the assad regime and rebel forces are accusing one another of using chemical weapons. syrian state media repor
to say on israel. obama is meeting with five leaders. perez, netanyahu, abbas, fayed and abdullah jordan. this isn't just an israel trip but something he could do would be very significant is to empower john kerry, very overwhelmingly secretary of state to work on the peace process now. i still think this is the closing window. >> all right. >> there you go. >> i think dianne feinstein will get a vote on the amendment and i want to see the number of votes. you never what is going to happen in the gun debates. i remember in '98, we republicans were back on our heels and thought we would get absolute slaughtered. boom. we carried the day and won huge and the democrats went into retreat for a decade. i'd be surprised, put some of these restrictions and regulations on the floor. i'd be surprised to republicans. if you want to say background checks to keep the guns in the hands of felons, put that on the record. >> harry reid's reality, i don't know why we are so shocked about this outcome. he telegraphed this a month ago this is where this is going. >> he trying to protect his 12 senate demo
now, the smiles, pomp, circumstance; also president obama visiting what's called the iron dome, that is a u.s.-funded missile defense system that was very successful during the gaza war, something the israelis want to show off and they feel shows u.s.-israeli military cooperation and shows the united states a little bit of what it gets for its $3 billion in aid here to israel. the president obviously is meeting with leaders while he's here. he's also speaking directly to the israeli people who do not have a great approval rating for him. a recent poll in israel showed only 10% of israelis said they liked president obama. about another 30% said they didn't necessarily like him but they at least respected him. in this speech he is going to give to about 1,000 college students is designed to speak directly to the israeli population to see if he can't convince the israeli population that he's right that america has their back, and perhaps that can get more movement out of prime minister netanyahu if president obama is able to rally support from the israeli people themselves. >>bria
